How not to transport a house

Story PictureIt’s a startling but not necessarily unusual sight in Belize to see a house traveling down the road on the back of a flatbed trailer. It’s an art perfected largely by the Mennonites and those prefabricated wooden homes made in Spanish Lookout and elsewhere have come to be known generically as “Mennonite Houses”. Now we don’t know if the ill fated home pictured here was made by any Mennonite but whoever had the job of transporting it across this bridge, believed to be somewhere in the United States or Canada, is in big trouble. It seems that the weight of the building was too much for the span, which collapsed, leaving the house to fend for itself.
